Parents may choose one of the following payment plans for their portion of the student charges. Students will not be allowed to register until the 1st payment has been paid in full.
- Full Payment at Registration: If the total annual amount due by the parents is paid in cash or by check at Registration, a three percent discount will apply.
- Ten Monthly Payments: Under this plan, parents will pay the Entrance Fee and Room Deposit, plus 1/10th of the net charges to be paid by the parent at the time of registration. The remaining 9 payments (September through May) will be equal payments of the remaining balance due from the parent for the school year.
Financial Aid Scholarships
We believe students who are committed to developing their God-given talents and enhancing their relationship with Jesus should not be turned away from Fletcher Academy because of finances. We commit to have sufficient work and justified, need-based financial aid to assist such students. This commitment requires a partnership between parent, student, church and school. The value of Christian Seventh-day Adventist education, as Fletcher Academy educates our young people for eternity, is measured in far more than dollars and cents and its benefits here on earth. The results will only be fully realized in Heaven.
Several types of financial aid are available to FA students based on academic qualifications and financial need. If applying for financial aid, the parents must fill out the FA Student Aid Application. The application will require a copy of your most recent Federal Income Tax return (only pages 1 & 2 of the 1040).
Fletcher Academy makes provision for students on financial aid to contribute to their education by working extra in the summer and over some of the breaks during the school year. This commitment, and even sacrifice, by student and parents may be part of the requirement for receiving financial aid and is part of the partnership between parent, student, church, and school. For complete scholarship guidelines and application procedures, see the student handbook or contact Stephen Learned.
Church Matching Scholarships
Families requesting Financial Aid must download and complete the Financial Aid Application, and return it with the first two pages of their currently filed IRS Tax Form 1040. Fletcher Academy will utilize the information provided only to determine the need for Financial Aid. If a family’s church also chooses to support the student through Church Matching Application, and the student is identified as having a financial need, Fletcher Academy will match up to $2,000 of the church’s assistance.
If you have any questions about the revisions to these policies or new forms, please don’t hesitate to call me at (828) 209-6711, or email me at SLearned@Fletcheracademy.org. I am always happy to answer questions from families, pastors, treasurers, and others.
The sponsorship program is a very important part of the financial plan to assist students in meeting the expenses of obtaining a quality Seventh-day Adventist education at Fletcher Academy. Students are encouraged to recruit sponsors like you who believe in the value of hard work. We make provision for all students to spend part of each day working because we believe that students must be taught that life requires earnest effort and responsibility. We endeavor to develop strong work ethics in our students as one of life’s true aims is to honor the Maker in doing our part in honest labor.
Please understand that contributions on behalf of a specific individual are generally NOT tax-deductible. Thank you for prayerfully supporting students who are committed to developing their God-given talents and enhancing their relationship with Jesus. With your faithful support no students will be turned away from Fletcher Academy because of finances.
Activity scholarships (up to $800) are usually awarded at Academy Days based on skills/abilities in Bible knowledge, instrumental or vocal music, art, or athletics. Auditions and/or examples of abilities will be judged by FA faculty in determining the amount of each scholarship. These activity scholarships are non-renewable after the first year.
Alumni & endowed scholarships (up to $1,700 per year) are usually awarded at Homecoming Weekend in October each year depending on the criteria set-up by the donors. Student Aid Applications are used to determine need. Eligible students are automatically considered. No additional application is required.
Academic GPA Scholarships
Academic scholarships for incoming students will be awarded based on standardized test scores from the previous school year. These GPA scholarships are renewable based on GPA. No additional application is required.
